Lina Lansberg

Elbow Queen

Sweden

Suffers second straight loss
BantamweightUFC
April 16, 2022
Lansberg lost to Pannie Kianzad via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
As has been the case for most of her UFC run, Lansberg hung around but ultimately didn't do enough to emerge victorious. All things considered, she looked pretty good for a fighter who entered as a +385 underdog. Lansberg was responsible for the biggest moment of the fight -- a knockdown in Round 2 -- but Kianzad turned up the volume in the first and third frames to take the decision. Lansberg has lost back-to-back fights and three of her last five dating back to October 2018, and it remains to be seen if the UFC will extend another opportunity to the 40-year-old Swede.

Offers little in Raleigh
BantamweightUFC
January 26, 2020
Lansberg was defeated by Sara McMann via unanimous decision (27-30, 26-30, 25-30) at UFC Raleigh on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
It was a highly disappointing effort for anyone that rostered Lansberg in fantasy lineups, as she recorded a career-low one significant strike through the 15-minute contest. Even in her debut against Cyborg, she managed 14. To add insult to injury, McMann had been coming off a two year layoff due to both pregnancy and an unspecified injury. Lansberg had been on a two-fight winning streak prior to this rough night at the office, but this will be a tough performance to bounce back from.

Picks up career's biggest upset
BantamweightUFC
September 29, 2019
Lansberg defeated Macy Chiasson via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-27, 29-28) at UFC Copenhagen on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
While it wasn't the most visually appealing fight, Lansberg used the support of the crowd and her veteran experience to come away with the evening's biggest upset. She appeared to drop the first round to Chiasson after absorbing a few big shots, but made an adjustment and chose to initiate clinch situations throughout the remainder of the bout. When it was all said and done, Lansberg lost the battle of significant strikes 21 to 26, but recorded two takedowns and three passes to ultimately win the favor of the judges in Rounds 2 and 3. The 37-year-old's window may be closing, but she's now won back-to-back fights as a heavy underdog, proving you can never count her out.
Faces uphill battle in Copenhagen
BantamweightUFC
July 12, 2019
Lansberg will face Macy Chiasson in a bantamweight matchup at UFC Copenhagen on Sep. 28.
ANALYSIS
Lansberg will seemingly head into this fight as an underdog, especially considering that Chiasson has yet to lose professionally after five fights. On top of that, Lansberg is just 3-3 since joining the UFC. The Sweden native will presumably have the crowd behind her, in addition to a major experience edge to lean on. Chiasson will have major size advantages, however, as she'll enter the cage four inches taller with a seven-inch reach advantage. It's a small sample size, but volume striking and striking differential both lean in the direction of Chiasson.
